The safe belongs to the Mafia godfather of Greenwich Village, and if he finds out who did it, not even Paulie's uncle in the Mafia can save them. They have such bonds of blood brotherhood, a cousin to them is closer than your mother is to you. The Pope Of Greenwich Village. Paulie has the answer to their problems. One of the best scenes from a forgotten movie. And they've always got some kind of con game going on the side. .
It's worth seeing for the acting, and it's got some good laughs in it, and New York is colorfully observed, but don't tell me this movie is about human nature, because it's not; it's about acting. I've only added the footage as a tribute for historical, entertainment, and creative purposes with no financial gain. But the tip-off is the last shot, where the boys have a happy-go-lucky walk down the street and into a freeze frame, while Sinatra is trotted out for his third encore. If any copyright shareholders involved with the film or music want this video removed, please notify me and I'll remove it myself. The behavior is well-observed, although Eric Roberts has a tendency to go over the top in his mannered performance, and the last two scenes are highly unlikely. That is a compliment in this family.
Also, has a well-acted key role as an old safecracker who gets caught in the middle of the whole deal. There is only one problem with this plan. No copyright infringement is intended. This movie is not really about anything except behavior, and the only human drama in it is the story of the safecracker and his family. Advertisement Paulie and Charlie have just been fired from their jobs at a restaurant for stealing from the management. His cousin, Charlie, tells him he's crazy. Paulie explains about the horse while he has his mouth full of a hero sandwich that's a yard long.
The real subject of the movie is the behavior of the characters, and the story is essentially an excuse for showboat performances. He can no longer support his girlfriend, a long-limbed, blond aerobics instructor who seems attracted to his exotic ethnic charm. He will buy the future champion racehorse with money from a juice loan and then pay off the loan by cracking a safe he has heard about. Wonderful acting from Eric Roberts. That doesn't mean it's not worth seeing. .
